Presidential candidate Donald Trump has a lead over candidate Hillary Clinton in Florida, according to a new swing states poll by Quinnipiac University.

Despite an avalanche of bad news, Bradenton developer Carlos Beruff is vowing to continue fighting for the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate.

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders appeared before his constituents nationwide in a live stream broadcast Jan. 23. 

At Skydive City in Zephyrhills, more than 30 people gathered to watch the live stream. The event was hosted by general manager and co-owner David Hayes.

"[A Sanders victory] It's probably gonna increase my taxes and my payroll; it's gonna force me to pay higher wages to my employees," Hayes said. "And you know what? I'm OK with that."

Depends. Whom do you believe?

The Tampa Bay Times/Bay News 9 poll out today shows that 6 percent lead for Romney in Florida.  It's consistent with earier polls by the same group, Mason-Dixon.

But other polls have the race in Florida tied or Obama slightly ahead. Nate Silver of the New York Times has Romey ahead by a tiny .6 percent in its polling average. (see below)
